Despatched to #Balmoral on #Diana ‘s honeymoon rtn
As a young reporter for Grampian TV in Northern Scotland, I was sent to report on the return from honeymoon of HRH Prince Charles and Princess Diana. It was an organised photo shoot by the Palace in the hope that the Press would then leave the newly-married couple in peace. That, as we know now, didn’t have much success at all.
The questions we threw at the pair that day about how they had enjoyed their holiday were innocent and hopeful for the future; again, as we know now, they were futile because it was already a sham marriage. The young bride had a desperate time as she discovered her new husband was still in love with his old flame, Camilla. She found he had a photograph of Camilla with him and noticed the Prince was wearing a pair of gold cufflinks engraved with interwoven Cs.”
We all wanted their marriage to be perfect and for her to be our Queen one day. What a dreadful arranged marriage it turned out to be. Princes Diana worked hard to find a place in her life after the Royal rejection and her death leaves us still to wonder about it all. Today, we can only give our thoughts to Princes William and Harry and let Diana rest in peace
